Cake Crust:

2 cups raw almonds (or any nuts of choice)

2 cups dates

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons organic coconut oil – melted

Pinch celtic sea salt

Method:

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mix looks like breadcrumbs – not too chunky – then press firmly (use the back of a spoon), into a baking-paper lined lamington tin.

 

Chocolate Mousse:

4 avocados – flesh removed

4 tablespoons raw cacao powder or carob powder (or use a 50/50 mix)

½ cup agave syrup – can also use honey (it will be very sweet though)

½ cup organic coconut oil – melted

½ cup water

pinch celtic sea salt

 

Method:

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour onto cake crust and place in freezer to set for at least 4 hours.

Serve slightly thawed with Almond Cream.

 

Almond Cream: 

1 cup almond meal

1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence

1 teaspoon pure agave or maple syrup

filtered water

 

Method:

Place almond meal, vanilla and agave/maple syrup in blender/processor then add small amounts of water.  Blend until the mixture is required consistency.
